Recent reports of clown sightings at or near Georgia Southern University are unfounded, according to university officials. While it may sound funny to some, a rash of reports across the southeastern part of the country have people with coulrophobia, or an extreme fear of clowns, shaking in their boots. The clown sightings reported to GSU police on Sunday follow similar reports over the past few weeks, with people claiming to have seen clowns, some reportedly luring children with money, in several states across the United States, including South Carolina, North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin, Georgia, Tennessee and Kentucky, according to online reports by various news stations.
